Bordeaux Summer School - Philosophy in biology and medicine

June 12th - June 16th, 2023

PhilInBioMed is both an interdisciplinary institute located at the University of Bordeaux and an international network connecting groups and people working at the interface between philosophy, biology, and medicine, with the shared conviction that conceptual and philosophical approaches can make a critical contribution to science and medicine.

Between June 12th and 16th 2023 PhilInBioMed organizes an interdisciplinary summer school Philosophy in Biology and Medicine. For this, 20 young scholars (PhD students and Postdocs) from the fields of philosophy of science, the life sciences, and medicine will come together and learn to use interdisciplinary methods to address conceptual issues in scientific research.

Course leaders will be there to present practical examples of interdisciplinary partnerships from their career, and to advise and interact with participants throughout the week. The program will also include different formats like group work, 'speed dating', and individual discussions, designed to further interactions between participants and between participants and course leaders. It starts with a conference by Elliott Sober (University of Wisconsin), laureate of the 2023 PhilInBioMed Award. Discussants are Kevin Lala (formerly Laland), Ford Doolittle, and Silvia De Monte.

This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to develop new interdisciplinary approaches that will benefit the participants throughout their career. Participants will not only learn about specific concepts and scientific advances, but they will also learn to take a new look at their own subject of research.

The summer school is held in the historic heart of Bordeaux, with a lot of nice pubs and friendly restaurants around.
